Hmm, this season didn't change my view on the characters drastically, but there were some changes.

Shana: My all-time favourite anime girl. I liked her more in season 1, but she's still awesome and kawaii in my eyes. I missed her triple urusai a lot in this season, as well as her aggressive personaliy sometimes (This is probably because of the many slice of life episodes this season) But her new cute outfits and her protectiveness of Yuji made up for it:)

She still gets a 10/10 from me.

Yuji: I didn't like him too much in season 1, but I like him quite a lot now. He isn't the helpless boy who can only whine no more. He learned to fight and has made his resolve to protect the village. He did show his weak side in the beginning of the season, but in the second half of the season he turned into a fine male lead. I didn't like that he was too indecisive in the love area though.

He gets a 8/10 from me.

Wilhelmina: I already liked her in season one, but I like her even more now. She really grew on me this season. She's stronger than she looks and her personality is really cute sometimes. Trying to act like her mother for instance. Combine that with the dry Tiamat...awesome

She gets a 8/10 from me.

Hecate: Most of her was anime original, but I still liked her. She stays pretty cute. She changed a lot from season 1 in some aspects though. Her new fighting abilities were nice and I liked that she had trouble with her new 'emotions' sometimes. They did 'overuse' her this season imo though.

She gets a 7/10 from me.

Dantalion and Domino: Don't ask...I just like the weirdos XD;

They get a 6.5/10 from me.

^ I don't really see how Hecate is overused. I doubt her screentime amounts to even 10 minutes through the whole season. She barely had any appearances aside from her attack on Yuji to seal silver again and the very last episode.

If i were to say which character is overused, it has got to be Kazumi. She didn't really have a purpose and the writers didn't really seem to know what she is supposed to do either. Her involvement in the story lacks any form of creativity and she is very limited in her actions, which would amount to thinking one thought: "i want to stand in the same place as Sakai-kun and Shana-chan".

Her role in season 1 was much more defined and her presence more meaningful. But it seems that after fulfilling her role as Shana's rival in season 1, now it seems the writers simply had ran out of ideas what to do with her, thus she ends up as presence with barely any purpose.

As for my favorites ... i am not really sure i have one :heh: Yes, i have some characters i would prefer over others, but i don't really like any of them to the extent i would want to vote for them on the poll and say "yes, this is a charater i like from SnS".

  1. Yoshida Kazumi - Alright, you all knew it was coming. Kazumi, to me, is the character that makes this anime worth watching. She is sweet, kind, cute, and overall a completely normal girl. Her love for Yuji is pure, and she is just so completely selfless. If this series was renamed "The Devient World" with Kazumi emerging as the late heroine, it would be a complete work of art. Yuji should have chose her. :(
  2. Hecate - Maybe it's just Noto Mamiko or something, but Hecate by far has the most character development of anyone in the series, in my opinion. It's interesting to watch her. Like, she was quietly evil in season one, but this season, from the bird scene and the end of twenty four, it shows that there is more to her than meets the eye. She's still nowhere near Kazumi, but she gets into my favorites.
  3. Seeking Researcher - Honestly, there's too much good about him to pass him up. Namely, when he appears and is in action, the storyline moves with such a quick pace. Though he is impossible to time, since he never ends his phrases...

There are no notable mentions for this list.

1) Shana : She was the reason I got into Shakugan no Shana. No Shana = no show IMO. And I love her melon bread love. :) +10 for Shana since shes voiced by Rie Kugimiya too. I may just be a closet lolicon though...

2) Alastor : I love him in the Shana-tan Specials.

3) Konoe Fumina : Even though the episodes she were in sucked hard I still like her. It may just be Noto Mamiko like ChrissieXD said.

All the other characters are likeable just not my favorites, though sometimes I wanted to smack my head repeatedly into a wall at Yuji's density at the 2 girl's feelings. If I hated 1 of them I would fast forward to the next scene in 0.001 seconds.

serenade_beta 2008-03-28 12:50

Kazumi - the main link in the series to the normal world, sweet, kind...... I'm saying the same things as ChrissieXD. :heh:
Personally, I think there was way too much hate and death posts at her...

Fumina - voted for her because of everything she is, except the Hecate deletes her part

Others, AKA Dantalion - crazy guy and fun to watch and listen to. :heh:

Crisano 2008-03-28 15:56

There was no character that I hated in this series. However, I had to narrow down my vote to four people.

Kazumi Yoshida- Poor Kazumi, so many people dislike her; worse, hate her. I thought Kazumi was a great character, very nice, helpful, and cool at times. She was very brave, following her "feelings" and sticking with what she believes. Apparently, some people don't like how normal humans think aka "Yuji, I want to be with you". But, then again, I'm probably sticking words into people’s mouths, so ignore these, probably, false accusations.

Yuji Sakai- Surprisingly, there were problems with him, too. I still liked Yuji; he grew a lot in this season. He turned into quite a fighter, using the Bloodsucker and his sliver flame... thingy (I forgot). Yuji is awesome.

Margery Daw- She also grew more awesome this season. It was nice to see her a little more of her life, the whole Yuri and Annaberg episodes. Not to mention that she is so awesome and helpful in fights and in general. Basically, she is more awesome this season.

Fumina Konoe- Another controversy, I liked her. She was so "cute" and a competitor for Shana and Kazumi. Besides, she brought Shana and Kazumi more together.

"Honorable mention" goes to Wirhelmina Carmel, Shana, and Hecate.

nines 2008-03-28 16:08

Alastor - Hes just plain out awsome lol

Shana - A strong little girl its kool she gets a 10/10 in my book. Only thing i didnt like about her and yoshida was the constant ill win ill win stuff goin on

Wilhelmina: She is kool very serious and very cute i liked her look when she was fighting sabrac and she didnt have the arpon over the top she looked really nice like that ^.^

I presume you meant "apron" here, but what scene are you talking about exactly?

rainbow_star 2008-03-28 19:21

For me it's Shana-chan and Wilhelmina.
I just can't resist Loli and Maid XD

CapoExecutor 2008-03-28 19:38

I must tip my hat off to the little people (Yuji, Shana, Kazumi, Konoe, and Hecate) due to having more depth in their character.

Of course, I'll assume that Konoe and Hecate are two sides of the same coin or being.

HayashiMugen 2008-03-28 21:24

May sound stupid, REALLY stupid. I like girls with personality likes Shana's. Awkward..... >_>

Mai Kawasumi 2008-03-28 21:52

Shana, Alastor, Wilhelmina, Pheles for me, and in "others", I vote for Dantalion and Domino :heh:

Hahaha who doesn't like DOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMIIIIIIINNOOOOOOOO!1!!? Dantilion has the most comedic relief in the whole series. May be obvious. But then again Shana's mind set is also a comedic role, which is cute.

Shana 2008-03-29 00:22

Shana: Well, it's just obvious xD

Hecate: She didn't even get 10 minutes of screentime, but she was one of my favorite characters. I "evolutioned" a lot through the first and 2nd season.

Others - Ogata

minhtam1638 2008-03-29 05:29

No-brainer, but I have to give a shout out to Yuji as well.

Xellos 2008-03-31 09:52

Shana: Probably the biggest reason I watch the series.
Wilhelmina: There's a certain je ne sais quoi about her that does it for me. Maybe it's the combination of the taciturn nature, maid outfit, and quiet affection for Shana.

MercFH 2008-04-04 16:49

Wilhelmina because I think she's just AWESOME
and Obviously Shana of course, because...i's SHANA
Hectate for being awesome too

BearShare 2008-04-04 19:21

Shana is a given.

Other goes to Chigusa for being an awesome MILF.

BookOfMages 2008-04-04 20:13

Shana: Bah! obviously! Shana is the first Tsundere I've ever liked, she got me into other Tsunderes, and she is one badass moe loli. <3 :heh: She's so cute, with her PURE love of Melon Pan, and the fact she's so innocent when it comes to "IRL" things. :heh:

Konoe Fumina: Auughh <333 [-Huggles her-] She was like the definition of Moe. Goddamn. I love the fact she reaches out to birds, it's so innocent, and omfg her in a witch costume shoots me back to Yuki Nagato and Tabitha, oh Konoe Fumina is oh so cute in that costume. :heh: I cried like so much on episode 15 when she went away, then a lot at the final episodes, MEMORIES OF KONOE FUMINA BURSTED INTO MY MIND. ;_____;

Hecate: Much character development, and like she's pretty with earrings. She is like so hardcore, her attacks are like holy shit awesome, but her expressions include: expressionless face, Angry Face, confused face, sad face, and orgasm face. I happen to enjoy all of them, especially the last one. :heh: but she has like little screentime in this season, much to my disappointment...
